I just had the same thing happen to me. There was a lightning storm here on Saturday night so, even though I have a surge protector, I assume that it took a surge.
HERE IS THE SOLUTION! If you unplug the printer (pull the plug!) for at least 20 minutes (which lets the system discharge)then plug it back in, the system is allowed to reset and will fire back up when you press the power button.
I know the above post is 3 weeks old, but I'm hoping this will help other searchers like me as well.

Re: Will not turn on MP830
When the printhead goes bad sometimes the printer will not power up, if you can get to it you have to remove the inks and printhead and see if it powers up, if it does, don't put the printhead back in as you could damage the main logic board. Power supplies on these machines are very robust and seldom fail.

The lighting circuit and the compressor electrical circuit are independent from each other once they go past the electrical terminal block, (where the power cord connects to, on the back of the fridge).
For the description of the problem, it sounds like you have a loose power cord terminal connection at the block, a defective power cord or power outlet.
Try connecting the fridge on the other power outlet (if it is connected to a regular dual outlet ), some times the contactors, over time, tend to loose the grip on the power cord plug and the contact is lost, when you remove the plug from the outlet and plug it back in, restores temporarily the contact again, or, the plug itself can be defective and loses contact. Replacing the power cord and using a different power outlet (even if it is a dual) will let you know if that where the problem was. If that doesn't solve the problem, let me know and will do some more troubleshooting.
Good Luck and keep me posted.
well as they say they only build them to last until the warranty wears off. if the power supply is making a whining noise it might have blown. either you could buy a new one or as you said the repair center is 150 miles away.......
Try the printer in a different outlet (other side of room, or similar, not same power Jack)
If you have power here, your issue is likely the outlet, not the printer.
If the power cord has an "on" LED, check to see if it is lit up while plugged in.
If you have an LED with no light while it is plugged in, you are looking at a power adapter that is no longer working
If there is no "on" LED to check, your next best bet
is to take your printer and power cord to a store that sells printers,
and ask if you can "try" a new chord before buying it. (most stores
will allow this to keep customers happy)
You may also want to check with the manufacturer if the chord is found to be bad, as some will send replacements free of charge.
The last option is that there is an issue inside the
printer. This is not likely, though it is possible. Most printers have
an external power adapter that keeps any power issue outside of the
printer, but I can't tell from the Canon site if this printer has one
or not. (It would be a black box between the plug and printer.)
This can also be checked by "testing" a new chord at a store. New chord, still no power, internal issue.
If this is the case you will want to contact Canon if the unit is still under warranty.
It surely sounds like a strange issue as everything was working fine when you packed your printer. In this kind of a scenario i will give you few steps and you can try them out.
- Unplugg the power cord and the data cord from the printer. ( I mean it should not be connected to the power and to the computer ) - Press and hold the power button on the printer for 20 seconds. ( You wont feel anything happening, its a way to drain out static charges from the printer )
- Plug in the power cord from both ends and make sure that its fitted properly. - Try a different power outlet - You may not have another power cord, if you have one try that as well.
Hope that this resolves your issue or you may have to take it back to the manufacturer.
Go on an elimination hunt. Try connecting to a new power outlet altogether. If no go, try turning off and removing all cords, usb etc, reconnect. Then try uninstalling and reinstalling the printer to see if this corrects it. Post agian if no good.
